You macro lovers now have another option from Sony. The FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro. I love the Sony 90mm Macro. It’s one of my favorite lenses since at 90mm it doubles as my 85mm but at $1100 it’s expensive. The new 50mm FE f2.8 is priced at $498. Much more affordable. If you like shooting bugs […]

Unfortunately I don’t have my copy anymore. I just couldn’t use the camera reliably for my type of work without having it overheat in UHD […]

Extreme Measure to Stop a6300 from Overheating.

When I first saw this video I thought it was a joke but it’s not! I applaud the ingenuity, but if I rolled out with a giant red PC fan on the back of my Sony a6300 I think I would get some head scratching looks. This goes to show how ridiculous this overheating thing […]

Testing the CAME-TV Single with Sony a6300 & 16-35 F4

April 12, 20161 Comment

I have a shoot this Friday and I want to use the CAME-TV Single with the a6300 but the only image stabilized lens I have that is wide is the 16-35 f4. It’s a fantastic full frame lens and that’s part of the problem. It’s very heavy and full frame doesn’t give me that much […]

The Sony a6300 has so many nice upgrades from my favorite sidekick. Goes everywhere with me a6000. Incredibly fast auto focus and the Metabones adapter works very well with my Sigma 18-35. Still need to try other Canon lenses. 4K internal recorded footage looks really good. But……. One BIG issues came up and another I can […]

Sony FS5 Face Detection Plus the Sony UWP-D16 Wireless in Action!

February 24, 20161 Comment

Here is another little test but this one is on the air! I know auto focus isn’t very good in general with most video cameras. The exception is the Canon’s Dual Pixel AF but Sony has made some advances and the Sony FS5 that I have on loan has Face Detection track auto focus. I […]
